The Margaret River Region is just under three hours’ drive from Perth, while its gateway coastal town of Dunsborough, perched on the turquoise-tinged Geographe Bay, is just minutes from the starting point of the track at Cape Naturaliste. From this historic lighthouse, the epic trail unfurls 135 kilometres until it reaches the imposing lighthouse at Cape Leeuwin.
Tackle the entire trail in five to seven days – either solo or as part of a guided tour – or embark on a shorter section of the track over a few hours or a day.
As you traverse the track, you’ll be enthralled by spectacular coastal and forest scenery, and an ever-changing display of colourful wildflowers and native flora. Kick off your walking boots for a refreshing dip in the Indian Ocean, gaze in awe at towering karri forests and take in clifftop views of ancient rock formations. Between September and December, spot migrating humpback whales keeping you company in the waters below.
